Thanks you for agreeing to get cozy with us, The Total Bettys! We are just starting to get cozy ourselves in the Bay Area music scene. We are a four-piece pop punk band, and we just assembled a few short months ago.
We came together out of sheer will to kick ass and play punk music. Kind of a ragtag bunch, we come from all over the country and we whipped this band together without having a clue what we were doing, but thank god we did.
Since we banded together, we can all say we have three new besties. One particularly cute thing is that our bassist Anthony has all of our last names as “Betty” in his phone, so it’s almost like we’re one big family (at least in our group text.)
We put out our first EP Connect with the Couch at the end of July, and we have been writing new material like crazy ever since. The EP shows off three of our favorite tunes: one about chilling with your best buddy (out drummer Chris’s fave), one about getting the cold shoulder from someone you like, and one about moving to California and still being sad.
The Total Bettys guitarists Maggie and Bri were actually listening to a ton of Bully when they were writing and recording the EP, and there is a lot of love there for other kickass women in punk. Other bands we drew inspiration from include Best Coast, Charly Bliss, and Colleen Green.
